With his profoundly moving, generally compact figures, Mazzolino—who primarily produced small-format devotional images—occupies a special place in the painting of Ferrara. The cherries that Joseph and Mary are proffering the Christ Child symbo­lically stand for the Passion and God’s love of mankind, for whose redemption he sacrificed his son.
